Working with Socially Isolated Older Adults: A Self-Directed Study Module

Welcome to this self-directed learning module created by HealthWell Educators and Consultants, Ltd., a “Seniors Connect” partner in Nanaimo, British Columbia.

The module is designed to meet the learning needs of individuals working in the fields of nursing, social work and gerontology and for students studying in health care and the social sciences.*

In it, we share what we have learned from our research and community action, including practical strategies that are not costly but make a big difference to quality of life for isolated older adults.

We hope you will find this learning opportunity enjoyable. Also, we hope it will encourage you to explore questions about social isolation when working with older adults in the future and that you will be able to integrate some new ideas into seniors’ programming within your own community.
